Munich gunman planned attacks for one year - Bavarian state crime office | Reuters

MUNICH The 18-year-old German-Iranian gunman who killed nine people in Munich on Friday began planning the attack one year ago after visiting the site of a 2009 school shooting in southwest Germany that killed 15 people, a Bavarian state official said on Sunday. Robert Heimberger, president of the Bavarian state crime office, said material founded at his home showed the gunman was an avid player of violent video crimes who purchased his weapon -- a reactivated Glock 17 pistol -- on the so-called dark net, an area of the Internet accessible only via special software. Heimberger said the parents of the gunman remained in shock and were not able to be interviewed. #Middle East #Europe #Iran #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #article

Anger, mourning in Afghanistan after Kabul suicide attack | Reuters

KABUL Members of Afghanistan's Hazara minority began the task of burying more than 80 people killed in Saturday's suicide attack in Kabul with many blaming political leaders for security failures that led to the massacre. Officials said 84 graves were dug into a hillside in the west of Kabul and bodies were brought up throughout the afternoon but, with large public assemblies banned for security reasons, there was no mass funeral. The attack on Saturday, against a demonstration by the mainly Shi'ite Hazara, was among the worst in Afghanistan since the fall of the former Taliban regime in 2001. #United States #Economy #Business #Africa #Argentina #Entertainment #article

ASEAN deadlocked on South China Sea, Cambodia blocks statement | Reuters

VIENTIANE Southeast Asian nations failed to agree on maritime disputes in the South China Sea on Sunday after Cambodia blocked any mention to an international court ruling against Beijing in their statement, diplomats said. Foreign ministers from the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) met for the first time since the U.N.-backed Permanent Court of Arbitration handed an emphatic legal victory to the Philippines in the dispute this month. The ruling by the court in The Hague denied China's sweeping claims in the strategic seaway, through which more than $5 trillion in global trade passes each year. #United States #Economy #India #Argentina #Foreign policy
